Our Mission The mission of The Piping Gourmets TM is to provide retail consumers gourmet specialty foodservice quality baked goods fresh from their oven. Providing a home- baked experience without the mess of traditional baking, perfect for both the novice and experienced baker. By packaging our products within an over-sized piping bag we also offer many options for consumers to customize flavors and or easily create a variety of different baked goods. Ready. Set. Cupcake! TM is made with all natural ingredients and is very versatile, it can even bake Madeleines, Whoopie pies and a 6” cake! Currently, there is a void in the frozen desert segment as there is not a frozen, all natural cake batter or real buttercream frosting available in the grocers freezer. Our goal is to create incremental category $’s within the frozen desert category and ultimately within the grocers overall dessert sales.
